One of the problems all advanced browser is backing up data stored in it. Even though technology has grown, maintaining data has been a tedious task! However browsers like Chrome and Firefox have started making it possible through sync feature.
As a normal Internet Browser we do store lots of data in browser. It might be password, some form details and even bookmarking few websites! All these are meant to be for future reference. At some time, maintaining them is not so easy!
If you look at the latest Browser stats, IE is still holding a top user base. But it is still lacking sync feature which helps user in accessing personal data as and when needed. Other browsers like Opera, Safari, Rockmelt and other web browsers do not offer this functionality at the moment, and a third-party application is necessary for this sort of operation.
FavBackup : Browser Data Backup and Restore Tool!
After looking at all these issues, we found FavBackup is a right tool for many users. This as a application offers backup options for a wide range of browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari and Flock.
There is another important feature that is it can convert the Opera profile from XP to Vista or Windows 7 and vice versa. It can also convert the Opera profile from 32 bit to 64 bit and vice versa.
